Blood Moon – “All U Got” (Stereogum Premiere)
As the drummer in Skylar Spence’s new live band and the former keyboardist for Chrome Sparks, Jesse Brickel knows his way around ’80s revivalism. Last year, he debuted his new project Blood Moon with the Cosmic Sands EP, diving headfirst into chrome-plated synth-pop and all the cinematic scope and dramatic flourishes that come with it. On “All U Got,” a one-off he’s releasing to kick off the summer, he builds around a pulsing synth and ringing guitars to craft one hell of a BBQ jam. Brickel’s occasionally soulful, sometimes deflated vocals serve as a good anchor for the swirling aurora around him, setting the lovesick mood as he admits that he’s a fool for falling for a girl but can’t help it.
